This place is old school awesome. It's beautiful Art Deco is fun. The people at the front desk were all really nice and helpful. The pool was in their neighboring hotel, which wasn't a problem, it was nice, but I was led to believe it was at the Penguin from the posting in Expedia. Maybe I didn't completely read the fine print, but it wasn't a problem. The only blemish was the fire alarm going off at 3:39 am on Sunday morning. Yikes. They said it was a test?!? Couldn't they do that during the day when I'm at the beach. That aside, I'd totally stay here again. The location was absolutely perfect for what we were wanting, which was lots of beach, a little pool, and walking to good eats.

The hotel was comfortable, extremely convenient in regard to the beach, restaurants, shops.. Front desk staff very professional and friendly. Housecleaning staff also very friendly and extremely conscientious in the preparation and cleanliness of the room. Only negative was parking. Unable to park on Ocean Drive ( not the hotels fault) they do offer valet parking with there sister hotel (the President) one block behind the hotel, but it was an unexpected expense, including a resort fee which wasn't on the initial reservation reservation through Expedia.
